Huss sells a Giant Jump2 to Paramount Canada's Wonderland

Posted Thursday, October 17, 2002 11:23 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Following last year's installation of a Giant Top Spin and next year's installation of a Giant Frisbee at Paramount's Kings Island, Huss today issued a press release indicating that they'll install a Giant Jump2 at Paramount Canada's Wonderland. The new Giant Jump2 will open May 4. Huss has now sold three giant rides, all to Paramount Parks.

I gotta wonder which of these flats was originally intended to go to Carowinds. It's good to see Canada's Wonderland continuing to add new flats.

Yet another flat ride to Wonderland...

I'm excited since it's only a day trip for me, but even thought I never really expected it... I was kind of hoping for a new coaster somewhere down the line.

Either way... they've been getting major new flat rides year after year with Cliffhanger, Shockwave, Psyclone, and now this... I tell ya... if you want a park with great flats... THIS is the place to be!

Booo!!! :( Wonderland is my homepark, and it is a wonderful park, but our last major coaster was in 1995! An SLC! That is our signature coaster!! Wonderland needs a new coaster!

I was wondering how long it would take for some to say PCW needs a coaster. Yes… it is kind of sad that the most popular coasters are an SLC and a Boomerang, but I'm not complaining. When the rides were built they were among the first of their kinds. It’s great to see a park concentrate on the big picture for once, and coasters is an area where PCW isn’t lacking (12 coasters is a lot). For some reason people don’t seem to count the Fly as a coaster addition - I don’t see why. You should concentrate on of the positives anyway – astounding woodies, great flats, short lines, great landscaping and a very tidy park. I'm just glad that I have *any* park within 3/4 of an hours drive of my house.

Anyway, on my last visit to PCW (this past Saturday) I noticed that behind Psyclone there were workers placing neon flags in a big circle. This is most likely were to ride will be placed.

Paramount seems to love Huss's giant rides collection and I wonder how long it'll be before we see one of these rides show up at PKD.

I would love to see a top spin or frisbee at PKD in the future because they certainly need to build up their flat ride collection just as they have done with their coaster collection,all PKD needs in the coaster department is a hyper,shuttle and or a floorless and then they'd be all set coaster wise but what they need right now are some good flats and Drop zone is a great way to start.

With an already gold collection of flats, this is the icing on Wonderland's cake. Beautiful park, by the way.

Apparently it was going to be called Delirium, but then they decided to chage it... not sure of the new name.

But it will be a decent year for the park... this, the new kiddie section, and some other stuff... *** This post was edited by Vortexguy on 10/17/2002. ***

And people say Six flags in unoriginal with names? Geez every single Paramount Park has almost the same ride names.

Ok, we do have some type of press release or newspaper article for this somewhere? The link to Coasterbuzz Canada's Wonderland says nothing about this ride unless its one of those hidden easter eggs like on DVDs. *** This post was edited by Koaster King on 10/17/2002. ***

Another flat ride. Uggh. This one looks pretty bad, too... Why didn't paramount stick with Mondial?

Actually, I'd much rather see replacement trains on Vortex. Arrow is now making new suspended floorless trains. You can check them out at:

They didn't stick with Mondial because all three of them so far are maintinence hogs, and have way too much downtime.

They better not change Vortex, or there'll be hell to pay... (And not just what you're thinking... there's something else much worse...)

N3M3S1S, until you've ridden a Jump (which I have), don't knock it. The "junior" version is a sick, sick ride. To see those arms fly up in a split second still spooks me.

That ride looks pretty awesome. I only rode one original "Jump" at SFGAdv (i forget what they call it there). I actually didn't like the ride very much, but my main gripe was that it didn't really drop that far down. It looks like the giant version will have a much longer drop, which will be fun.

Also, i found the constant spinning of the one at SFGAdv to be a little too much - i wish it had varying spinning speeds, and maybe changed direction once in awhile to cut down on the nausea. Regardless, i'd love to see more Giant rides, they seem like a less expensive yet equally effective way to get the GP into a park - maybe the smaller SF parks will catch on (i.e. SFNE!!).

I'm totally jazzed about this new ride. It makes me want to plan a trip to La Ronde and Canada's Wonderland. Very cool stuff. Simply amazing.

According to Amusement Today, the ride will be called Sledge Hammer, and "will be part of a new group of attractions" that the park will announce in the next few weeks. (Click on the "extra extra" link to see the article.)

If it were to be called Sledgehammer, shouldn't it go down instead of up?!?!
